May 2010 Accomplishments

I think that my quilting/sewing mojo is returning!!
  1. Got a new blackberry and I love it!! (Holllllaaaa to Barb, my phone twin!!)
  2. Finished cutting out the 2009 Thimbleberry quilt!
  3. Met Amy and went shop hopping around Dayton!
  4. Reviewed all my 2010 crafting goals - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7. Quite a motivator!
  5. Finished the Milky Way quilt!!
  6. Finished the first sock in my purple pair! Started the second sock, too!
  7. Signed up for a knitted sweater class. Also got the gauge all worked out!
  8. Made the Reversible Table Runner.
  9. Started my SIS quilt. I got the 4 patches almost finished and the HSTs ready to be made into pieces!
  10. Had a sewing day at Barb's! I cut some kits to take with me.
  11. Made an Easy Striped Table runner.
  12. Made a take along bag
  13. Made 3 sock knitting bags
  14. Made a tool caddy
  15. Made a dishcloth and started another one and a baby cap
  16. Picked strawberries and made jelly with Granma, Carol and Meghan. (I have pics, but haven't gotten the post written up yet.)

I also got a lot of books 'read' this month!

  1. Apple Turnover Murder by Joanne Fluke - I think that I can continue with the series, but definitely by manually reading the books. I can get through them quicker than listening to the book on CD.
  2. The Endless Forest by Sara Donati - Loved this book! I think that this is a great series and I really enjoyed listening to them all! Very sad for this to be the last book, but at least they can all be re-visited in the future! :)
  3. Precious by Sapphire - Ummm... Odd! But a very short book. I also saw the movie, but had to rewind it like 3 times in order to see the last parts. That's a few hours that I am not getting back!
  4. Dear John by Nicholas Sparks - I wanted to read the book before seeing the movie. I enjoyed the book and actually cried during the last 30 minutes!
  5. Hide by Lisa Gardner - This was the second book of Gardner's that I read and I really enjoy her writing and story lines! This one was very interesting!!
  6. The Neighbor by Lisa Gardner - Obviously, I really enjoyed the series!!
  7. A Drunkard's Path by Clare O'Donohue - I don't find this series as endearing as the Cobbled Court Quilt series, but it was a good read and a nice mystery.
  8. Baby Proof by Emily Giffin - I enjoy this author also!! This was a light and enjoyable read!

Hours spent - quilting - 49.25; knitting - 23.75

What a month!! Now that we are getting into the warmer months, I'm not sure how much I will be able to spend in my sewing area. I might have to move to the first floor again this year! It's too soon to tell.

You got a lot done! So when do you find time to manually read, and still get all that done?
